This is war, people. Stand back while we fight the almighty bed bug.
Hey I get it...the danger of spreading bed bugs throughout the land and throughout the hospital...no one likes the little critters. But what I saw today makes me think that we have gone off the deep end.
First of all, apparently there is a 15 page explanation of the hospital bed bug policy, which is very complex and intricate in a binder. Who knew?
Whats funny is that apparently we are now supposed to wear a disposible paper jumpsuit. Yes, I said jumpsuit, a la Elvis or some shit. I mean that is how serious this has all become. Here's the thing because the paper "jumpsuit" could not be found, someone brought hazmat disposable suits to wear.
So registration goes in wearing a hazmat suit with hood up over their head. They also had a mask on due to droplet precautions. I tell ya, what we go through to get insurance information these days.
So there is registration making their way into the room for those signatures. Following them lab, with same get up and hood and mask. They look like they are entering some chemically contaminated scene. It was bizarre to say the least.
I wish I had a camera..
